Spanish Olives - Ancient Fruit

Posted in Spanish Olive Oils & Olives

Olives are an ancient fruit. The gnarled, twisted greyish trees look like they have been around since the beginning of time and many almost have. It is not unusual to find an olive tree that is as much as a thousand years old, still standing producing its annual crop, still braving summer heat and winter chill. In southern Europe, harvesting is done for several weeks in winter, but the time varies in each country, and with the season. Most olives today are harvested by shaking the boughs or the whole tree.

Spanish Olives - Ancient Fruit

This method is used for olives used for oil. Table olive varieties are more difficult to harvest, as workers must take care not to damage the fruit, so baskets that hang around the worker's neck are used. In some places olives are harvested by hand because the terrain is too mountainous for machines. As a result, the fruit is not bruised, which leads to a superior finished product. The method also involves sawing off branches, which is healthy for future production.
